PLANETA - Burdese IGT 2005
Intense red berry aromas, leathery and mineral notes. Good concentration on the palate, warm and very intense; tannins are still quite dense and firm; long finish, rich aromatic flavours. Perfectly balanced giving a harmonious result.
Partners well with game, braised red meat, matured cheeses and cured pork.
